Halo around the sun.

Today around noon in Salem a strange rainbow encircle the sun. The inside of the circle was darker than the sky outside of the ring. In some areas, a second rainbow seemed to be forming encircling the first rainbow. It lasted for hours until the clouds disappeared.
My 8 yr old took the picture of me wearing sun glasses while looking at the ring and blocking the sun with my hand.

Last May while on vacation near Tulum, Mexico-about 1 1/2 hrs South of Cancun-I also saw a rainbow encircle the sun, and a second faint rainbow outside of it. I was able to snap a photo, the sun was so intense I only captured a glimps of it!
